Underfloor heating from JG Speedfit was specified as ultimate solution for heat distribution throughout the North Lodge.
The house is located in the heart of the picturesque Welsh Capital, right next to the colossal site of the gorgeous Cardiff Castle. It has a total quadrature of 121.09m2 and comprises of a master bedroom, kitchen, lounge, hall and a utility room.
The UFH concept offers great system control, concentrates warmth where needed for comfort and efficiency, and allows for further energy bill cuts. Naturally, to boost the energy-saving advantages of such a system an efficient heating controls technology is also required.
The staple system is suitable where large areas need to be covered and is ideal for rooms with an irregular shape. Using the screed as a heat diffuser, the pipe was secured with staples to rigid insulation panels placed over the concrete subfloor.
Efficient system control throughout the North Lodge house is ensured by JG Aura – the new heating controls range by JG Speedfit.
The system provides the capability of controlling multiple zones, enabling the homeowner to set heating time and temperature within each individual room resulting in considerable energy savings. This is enabled by JG Aura’s capability to simultaneously manage Underfloor Heating circuits, hot water supply and individual radiators.
The setup of the JG Aura network at the North Lodge house took minutes, as the JG Coordinator scanned and paired most components instantaneously – both of the large UFH manifolds downstairs as well as the upstairs radiator circuits were paired in minutes.
For the added benefit of controlling the system through a smart device, the JG Hub was installed providing an internet enable system. The only thing left to do was to download the JG Aura App on the homeowner’s smart phone and tablet, which allows for swift system control from anywhere and at any time of the day.
